There’s been some discussion of the pros and cons of twitter this week. From one of the pro pieces came these rules which I thought were pretty good:
Never check the site before 8am.
Mute anyone who is neither funny nor polite.
Mute notifications regularly.
Delete the app periodically.
Never assume anything is important just because it’s big on Twitter.
Never say in conversation, “As I recently tweeted”.
